Discuss the brand with the team on a regular basis for their assessment.

Remind the team as well as the market what your brand stands for.

Talk with customers to see how well you are delivering on the brand promise.

Find out from unhappy customers what you can do better.

The upside to unhappy customers is that they point the way to a better product or service.
